A Christmas Useless Fact

Rudolph the red-nosed horse…..  In 2001 the movement of livestock in Britain was restricted by an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease.  As a result, for the first time in its history Harrods, the famous London department store, had to replace its reindeer and sleigh with a horse and carriage.


  1. Hope the reindeer are back. No, i've nothing against horses, i love them and love to ride. Christmas really needs a reindeer or two, that's all.

  2. Hopefully all is well this year! I live in Amish country and a horse and carriage are everyday affairs in my neighborhood!

  3. I never thought reindeer really did pull sleighs, I imagine them as big deer roaming wild in the woods. Shows how much I know!!

  4. It looks as if I'm finally in again! Always love your posts. And Useless information is my favourite kind! Happy Christmas! xoxox Carol
